Spring Training Live Blog: Pirates vs Yankees

The Pirates play the Yankees today in their first real Spring Training game after the 6-1 revenge victory over the Hated Manatees, who are better known now as the State College of Florida.  The game today will be available on MLB.TV, MLB Network, and XM channel 176.  For those of you who don’t have any of those options, you can join the live blog below at game time to follow along with other Pirates bloggers and fans.  Here is the lineup, via Rob Biertempfel:

1. Andrew McCutchen, CF
2. Akinori Iwamura, 2B
3. Garrett Jones, RF
4. Ryan Doumit, C
5. Ryan Church, DH
6. Lastings Milledge, LF
7. Jeff Clement, 1B
8. Andy LaRoche, 3B
9. Ronny Cedeno, SS

That kind of looks like a potential opening day lineup, with the exception of the DH, of course.  The scheduled pitchers, via Chuck Finder:

Paul Maholm (will start)
Ross Ohlendorf (will follow Maholm)
Brian Bass (scheduled)
D.J. Carrasco (scheduled)
